Neuromodulator injections

While neurotransmitters help send messages through the body, neuromodulators, sometimes referred to as neurotoxins, are drugs that block nerve signals to muscles in the body. Botulinum toxin is an FDA approved neurotoxin that temporarily blocks nerve signals that cause muscle contraction. Types of botulinum toxin neuromodulators include Botox®, Jeuveau® and Xeomin®.

What are neuromodulator injections?

Botulinum toxin is considered to be one of the most potent neuromodulators. In small doses it proves to be an effective treatment option for various conditions. Most commonly used in the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes, botulinum toxin can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles resulting in a more youthful appearance. Botulinum toxin neuromodulation therapy and devices can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis and chronic migraines.

Neuromodulators

Neuromodulators such as Botox, Jeuveau, and Xeomin are invaluable in restoring your skin’s resilience and reducing the effects of aging. When lines and wrinkles begin to appear in the face, there’s no denying it — gravity is taking its toll, and age is beginning to show. The reason neuromodulators are so popular is because they have the ability to effectively improve lines, wrinkles, and creases. They can also prevent future ones from developing. Because neuromodulators work beneath the skin, they target the source of your wrinkles. This reduces muscle activity to smooth your skin, making you look and feel dramatically better.

Botox®

Botox® has been proven to reduce the effects of facial aging, such as crow’s feet, frown lines and other complexion issues.

Jeuveau®

Jeuveau® is used to help fight signs of aging around the eyes, such as frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet, and other fine lines.

Xeomin®

Xeomin® is a treatment option between or around the eyes, and helps combat unwanted signs of aging, such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles.

Cost of treatment

The price of neuromodulators is priced per unit and not per syringe, as is the case with dermal fillers. The actual number of units required varies depending on the treatment area and the strength of the targeted muscles.

Pictures

Say “cheese”

Pictures taken before the procedure provide a better view and understanding of the areas to be treated, and can be consulted when discussing specific goals with the practitioner. When compared to your “After” pictures, they are an effective way to track treatment results over time.

Diagnosis

Personalized muscle diagnosis

The practitioner first conducts a personalized assessment of your facial anatomy and marks the exact injection points with a white makeup pencil. You will be asked to frown, raise your eyebrows, and smile widely to help determine the strength of your facial muscles and to identify the best treatment for achieving optimal results.

Injections

Begin treatment

The procedure lasts only a few minutes. No anesthesia is needed since injections are made with a small-gauge needle that minimizes any discomfort. Using the marked points as a guide, the practitioner proceeds with injections and determines the minimum amounts needed to achieve the desired effect.
